Funding to maintain and upgrade our municipal water systems has plunged on a per capita basis since the 1970s, and private water companies are looking to capitalize off of vulnerabilities that a $35 billion a year funding gap presents.
MuckRock and Food & Water Watch are working on a joint project to identify and shed a light on efforts to privatize the country’s public water system. The organizations will be submitting public records requests to the largest water systems in the United States – from Puerto Rico to California and in between – looking for the latest corporate attempts to absorb community water supplies into their revenue streams.
We also want to hear from you about management concerns and privatization efforts near you.
Let us know which cities or water systems you care about, and we’ll submit a public records request to learn more.
